      Producer John Cameron attended Birmingham Groves High School in Birmingham, Michigan. While there, he befriended director Sam Raimi and actor and producer Bruce Campbell. The three of them began working on short films together as teenagers in 1973. Upon finishing high school, he went to study film at New York University. When he completed his education, he connected with Raimi and Campbell again, as well as producer Robert G. Tapert, and acted in a small part in Raimi's first full-length, the quirky horror film "The Evil Dead," which would go on to become a cult hit. Raimi had hired Joel Coen, who was a talented young editor, to assist cutting the film, introducing Cameron to another of his long-time collaborators. In 1985, he acted as second assistant director on another Raimi-directed dark comedy, "Crimewave," which was co-written by the Coens and the director. His first occasion working directly with the Coen brothers was in 1994, when he was first assistant director on their comedy film "The Hudsucker Proxy." He has since enjoyed a fruitful relationship with the duo. Starting with the 1996 dark-comedy crime picture "Fargo," he has co-produced many of their films. He is also the president of their production company, the KL Line. As a result of his relationship with Raimi, Cameron has also directed episodes of the TV shows "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" and "Xena: Warrior Princess."
